Call for Papers

Half day workshop at ACM IUI 2016 in Sonoma, CA, USA
March 10, 2016

Our goal is to foster this novel area of visualization that takes user affective states into consideration. The EmoVis 2016 workshop is co-located with the ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (ACM IUI 2016) and welcomes researchers, practitioners and experts from a variety of scientific domains, including visualization, human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology, and multimedia. This workshop will act as a forum where people with diverse backgrounds can present design principles and introduce novel techniques for affect measurement and visualization.

We invite submissions that explore user emotional states in context of interactive visualization. Topics for submissions include but are not limited to the following areas:

  • emotion measurement devices and technologies, such as BCIs or smart wristbands
  • emotion detection algorithms, e.g., based on user physiology, user language/intonation or written text like Twitter posts
  • emotion visualization for individuals, groups or crowds
  • emotion visualization for supporting social interaction
  • capturing or generating engagement at large-scale events
  • awareness of emotions in collaboration or analysis tasks
  • emotion-adaptive visualizations capable of determining and reacting to user emotional states
  • user studies and evaluation techniques for emotion visualization and emotion-adaptive visualizations

Workshop papers accepted for EmoVis 2016 will be published by Linköping University Electronic Press. Submissions may be full research papers (maximal 8 pages) or shorter papers (maximal 4 pages) which may describe position statements, novel ideas, work-in-progresses, or recent results related to the topics of emotion and visualization. The authors should clearly indicate the submission type at the end of the abstract in order to help reviewers better understand their contributions. We select the papers according to novelty and quality on the one hand side, but also based on their potential to contribute to the workshop discussions. More information on how to submit a workshop paper can be found here.

It is planned to invite authors of selected papers for a subsequent publication of extended revised versions of their work in a special journal issue. If you have any questions, please contact the workshop organizers: The EmoVis 2016 Call for Papers poster can be downloaded as PDF. Please feel free to distribute it and invite people to participate!
